BACKGROUND: Indomethacin is commonly used as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) to treat inflammation, arthritis and joint pains. Unfortunately, it has a wide range of adverse effects on the physiological system, including gonads. This study aimed to assess possible beneficial effects of black tea extract (BTE) against indomethacin-induced alteration of gonadal hormone levels in male rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Adult male rats were divided into Group I (control), Group II (indomethacin, 5 mg/kg body weight [bwt...

Isolated bone marrow metastasis of testicular tumor is very rare. Here, we report this case of a 21-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital with generalized body pain, which was severe and weakness for one month. He had a history of an operative intervention for the left testicular mass about 6 months ago which was diagnosed as mixed germ cell tumor on histopathological examination. The blood investigations showed anemia, low platelets, and elevated tumor markers. Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy examination showed metastatic deposits of mixed germ cell tumor...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair procedures with or without mesh fixation for non-recurrent inguinal hernia. METHODS: 100 male patients with non-recurrent inguinal hernia (62 unilateral and 38 bilateral) were included in the study. The patients were randomly assigned to either the mesh fixation group (n = 50) or the mesh non-fixation group (n = 50). The operative and follow-up data of the two groups were analyzed and compared in terms of recurrence rates, postoperative pain, length of hospital stay, and postoperative changes in testicular arterial blood flow...

Testicular torsion is predominantly a disease of adolescence, but age itself should not be an exclusion criterion for the diagnosis. A lack of suspicion for testicular torsion in older patients may result in a missed or delayed diagnosis which jeopardizes the chance of testicular salvage. In this article, we report a case of testicular torsion in a 55-year-old Chinese man.

We describe a case of a man aged 57 years admitted to our tertiary centre via his general practitioner, presenting with a 1-week history of scrotal pain, testicular swelling and fluctuance. He was initially managed in the community with flucoclaxacillin for 1 week, but failed to respond to treatment. Clinical history was suggestive of Fournier's gangrene, but initial examination was not conclusive. Repeated examination over the next hour aided diagnosis and helped to track the progression of the condition...

Treatment of testicular cancer is dependent on the stage of disease at presentation. Stage 1 testicular cancer is treated with radical orchiectomy, followed by active surveillance, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy. Occasionally, unusual and unexpected postoperative changes can be seen on computed tomography (CT), and may raise concern for metastatic disease. Here, we present two cases of testicular cancer patients who developed retroperitoneal hematomas post-radical orchiectomy, one as a classical clinical presentation, and the other as an atypical radiological entity only...

A varicocele is described as pathologically enlarged, tortuous veins of the pampiniform plexus, leading to an increased testicular temperature and adrenal metabolite reflux into the testes. Varicocele can impair spermatogenesis and is considered to be the most common cause of male infertility. Patients may palpate a thickening in the scrotum or complain of dull scrotal or inguinal pain, which increases when standing or during erection. In the case of a sudden onset of varicocele in elderly men, it is necessary to exclude renal tumor and extend diagnostic ultrasound with the assessment of the abdominal cavity...

BACKGROUND: Brucellosis caused by Brucella suis is a notifiable disease that has recently emerged in dogs in New South Wales (NSW). Given the potential for zoonotic transmission, euthanasia of affected dogs is recommended, but this action is not mandatory. We report the clinical management of three dogs that underwent treatment at their owners' request. CASE REPORTS: A 14-month-old spayed female crossbreed originally obtained from an urban animal shelter underwent extensive investigations in 2011-12 for lameness and back pain, culminating in decompressive laminectomy...

In daily clinical practice, intrascrotal lesion are commonly detected, both by clinical examination either by ultrasound scan. While 95% of testicular lesions are malignant, most paratesticular lesions are benign. Among these, intrascrotal lipomas must be take into account in differential diagnosis. When they originate from scrotal wall, they named "primary scrotal lipoma". We describe a case of a primary intrascrotal lipoma diagnosed after surgical excision in a young man presented at our Urological Department complaining a painful left scrotal mass...

Chang Il Choi, Kyung Chae Park, Tae Ho Lee, Young Kwon Hong
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to determine if testicular delivery during microsurgical subinguinal varicocelectomy (MSV) reduces varicocele recurrence rates in pediatric patients. Testicular delivery during MSV enables ligation of the gubernacular veins, which is thought to reduce the likelihood of varicocele recurrence. However, recent studies have suggested that testicular delivery during MSV does not offer any beneficial effect and, therefore, may be optional or unnecessary...

Sertoli cell tumours of testes are classified into sertoli cell tumour NOS (not otherwise specified), sclerosing variant and large cell calcifying variant. So far, 90 cases of the large cell calcifying variant have been reported in literature. We describe a rare case of inhibin negative locally invasive large cell calcifying sertoli cell tumour of testis. A 62-year-old man presented with complaints of pain and swelling in right scrotum for 8 months. Ultrasound revealed a right testicular mass with internal vascularity and calcification...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopy is being increasingly applied to pediatric inguinal hernia repair. In younger children, however, open repair remains preferred due to concerns related to anesthesia and technical challenges. We sought to assess outcomes after laparoscopic and open inguinal hernia repair in children less than or equal to 3 years. METHODS: A prospective, single-blind, parallel group randomized controlled trial was conducted at three clinical sites. Children ≤3 years of age with reducible unilateral or bilateral inguinal hernias were randomized to laparoscopic herniorrhaphy (LH) or open herniorrhaphy (OH)...
